PublishAmerica presents King Lesserlight’s Crown

PublishAmerica is proud to present King Lesserlight’s Crown: A Children’s Story for Grownups, Too by Charlie W. Starr.

A terrible Gloom steals King Lesserlight’s heart and replaces it with an old ticking clock. Neither Poppy nor Perfect, who live in a slanted house, nor Lady Westwind, whose home leads to many countries, nor Jester, whose daylight astronomy involves “shooting stars,” nor the Shepherd of the floating pools can say what’s become of King’s Joy. Princess Snow tells King his heart is gone while Dancing Sun shares his pain. In the Lore Lord’s Valley, King receives a new heart but isn’t healed. He wanders through mysterious caves, rides a flying moose, and visits Jack through all his yesterdays. But none of these encounters restore his heart or help him find his lost Joy. His only hope is to go to the Castle of the Child. There, among rainbow fountains, moving paintings, playful hippos, mighty whirlwinds, flying pigs and the beautiful, magical Child himself, King Lesserlight’s adventures really begin.

Charlie W. Starr lives in Grayson, Kentucky where he loves to teach, write books, make movies, read C. S. Lewis, watch TV and explore caves. Charlie has a “full of life Cajun wife,” Becky, and two children: Bryan, who loves making movies, and Alathia, who loves making music.
